Thanks to our Moderators/Administrators!!!

Along with the Christmas wishes, it seems l like a good time to thank those who make this forum a civilized and very helpful place for the rest of us to interact. It has to be a low-paying thankless job at times.

I used to participate in two other very high traffic forums that really let posters go much too far before reining them in. And both forums devolved into chaos including shocking personal attacks at the drop of a hat.

Having had that experience makes me appreciate what our moderators here do for us.

A sincere thanks ladies and gentlemen!

Whole-heartedly agree! Thank you for your committed efforts. They are visable but not appreciated as often as deserved.

We would much rather devolve into sheer nonsense. Personal attacks are so philistine don'tcha know. Anybody can commit a personal attack, but really high-quality nonsense is something to cherish.

Thanks from me, too. I run some cancer online support groups and have had some awful run-ins (I've been doing it for 12+ years). Luckily quiet now... But this group is WAY more interesting and intelligent!! Believe me, it's appreciated!
